You, Darkness From Which I Come: A Performance and Discussion of a Contemporary Musical Setting of New Translations of Rilke's Poems
Friday evening, November 17, 2017
7:30 - 9:00 p.m.
Old South Church, 645 Boylston Street, Guild Hall
Translator Mark S. Burrows will serve as moderator, with composer Delvyn Case. Andrew Shenton of Boston University will offer a response. The musical portion will be performed by Elisabeth Marshall, soprano, and Brady Millican on the piano.
The performance is of a new composition by Delvyn Case, a nationally celebrated young composer who makes his home in the Boston area and teaches at Wheaton College (MA), of Mark Burrows' Rilke translations (from Prayers of a Young Poet, Paraclete Press, 2016). Del's works have been performed by more than 60 orchestras, at concert halls across the United States (including The Kennedy Center, Tanglewood, and on NPR's "Performance Today"). He is also co-founder and pianist for the avant-garde improvisation ensemble, the meltdown incentive, which explores the complex relationships between text, music, and sound in edgy, thought-provoking, and often humorous new ways.
This event is free and open to the public and will be followed by a reception sponsored by Paraclete Press.
